Gets the job done.. once in a while.
This product is helpful if you have an oily blemish coming in. It dries up the area to prevent the breakout from worsening. I'll dab some on at night before I got to sleep. It sometimes works for me, but I would never rely on it solely for spot treatments. I will always recommend talking to your doctor or dermatologist and getting a prescription product rather than buying something over the counter. Products like this just aren't strong enough to get the job done for more-than-mild acne.
Effective spot treatment...
Although it stings like a [bleeeeeep]. Also, it's nice now it's transparent. It's nice to 'seal' spots before applying makeup (just to keep that part of your face 'sterile'). It's harsh, but I don't mind it being harsh because it's spot treatment (unlike the moisturizer/toner from the same range, which really dries your skin).
I received a mini trial version of this with one of my Sephora orders and I use it when I have a lot of trouble spots. Seems to work but I need to put on a lot or use it many times to see a huge difference. Would recommend trying it on your skin before buying full size but is a nice quick spot healer !
I love this stuff and my clients do too. I gave this to a bride about a few weeks before her big day and oh she love the stuff. It cleared up her break-outs and relieved the redness. I love it also for myself. Hey you never know when you need it. It takes about 2 days or 3 day (depending on the breakout) and poof it's gone. Now this has 1% Salicylic Acid so it's strong you would just need to use it on the breakout and not too much on the skin. I can dry you out.
(For drier skin or if you want to use it over an area, Use it's cousin, Clinique Acne Solutions Emergency Gel-Lotion. This one has 1% Benzoyl Peroxide So it's gentler for skin.)
I wish I knew about this in high school. Well now I can tell high schoolers about it. It's a must!
I use this on any spot that comes up and it works wonders on it, I think the longest a spot as stayed is two, I put a small amount in the morning and then some before bed and I wake up and its gonna. A must buy in my eyes.
